Full-field experimental stress/strain analysis of sandwich structures

Dulieu-Barton, J.M. (2008) Full-field experimental stress/strain analysis of sandwich structures In, Torres Marques, A. (eds.) Advanced School on Sandwich Structures. Advanced School on Sandwich Structures (ASSS 08) Porto, Portugal, University of Porto pp. 1-25.

Record type: Book Section


The aim of this lecture is to introduce students to four basic types of experimental stress/strain analysis namely: Photoelastic Stress Analysis, Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry (ESPI), Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and Thermoelastic Stress Analysis (TSA). The lecture will cover the underlying physics of each technique and discusses the challenges of applying each technique to sandwich structures. Examples of where the techniques have been used successfully on sandwich structures are cited in the lecture.
